One ASEAN voice: Regional patient advocates aim to move the needle

The 6th Southeast Asia Breast Cancer Symposium (SEABCS), held from September 23-25, 2022 in Taguig City, Philippines and online, concluded with participants committing to forge partnerships to move the needle in breast cancer healthcare.

At a session on the last day, September 25, called “Louder Together: Calling All ASEAN Voices”, participants from Indonesia, Malaysia, Myanmar, the Philippines, Vietnam and Thailand brainstormed on ways patient advocates can help one another to reduce breast cancer incidence, increase access to lifesaving medicines, and improve data collection to establish measurable objectives and objectively evaluate impact.

Early Breast Cancer Detection Guidelines

A healthy future begins with you. With breast cancer, it is important to remember that there is a cure, especially if it is diagnosed early. Regular Breast Self-Examination (BSE) is just one way to significantly increase the early detection of breast cancer. BSE only takes a few minutes, just once a month.
